SourceTree 1.0 released, now with Mercurial support

By on June 26, 2013

It’s a big day for SourceTree for Windows: We’re releasing version 1.0 into the wild today. Every developer knows that hitting 1.0 is a formative moment for every product, and we think we’ve got a cracking release for you to check out. The full release notes have the complete story but here are the highlights:


Mercurial support

The big headline feature in this release is support for Mercurial, finally bringing the Windows version into line with the Mac. Thanks to everyone who has been asking for this for their patience – to make up for it you get early access to a few Mercurial enhancements which are pending the next version on Mac, such as optimized, full-log previews of incoming / outgoing changes. Enjoy!

Push and pull counters

Push and pull

You can now see how many changes you have to push or pull on the toolbar and on your bookmarks. Never forget to push again!

Automatic remote fetching

SourceTree can now periodically fetch new commits from your default remotes in the background so you’re always up to date with what’s going on.

Stage and unstage shortcut buttons

Staging commits with SourceTree

By popular request we added some extra buttons to make staging and unstaging at a file level faster in Git.

… and lots more!

We really hope you enjoy this milestone release of SourceTree for Windows. Let us know what you think!


Note: If you’re still on, please see our previous blog post for how to update.

New outbound IP addresses for post-receive hooks

By on June 11, 2013

Bitbucket supports several post-receive hooks, such as Bamboo build integration, diffs via email, HipChat notifications and more.  Today we made a change to our network configuration that results in these services routing through different IP addresses.

If you’re already taking advantage of our post-receive hooks and have ingress firewall rules to allow us to communicate with your servers, then you’ll need to update your rules.

The old source IP address was:

The new source IP addresses are:

Emergency maintenance Thursday, May 23, 2013 0300 UTC

By on May 22, 2013

A few hours from now on Thursday May, 2013 0300 UTC, Bitbucket will be unavailable for up to 30 minutes to perform emergency maintenance.

This morning’s brief outage was due to what has been discovered to be a faulty component of Bitbucket’s datacenter networking infrastructure. This networking equipment must be replaced as soon as possible to avoid further unexpected outages.

We apologize for the sudden nature of this downtime. Please contact us at support@bitbucket.org if you have any questions.

Edit your code in the cloud with Bitbucket

By on May 14, 2013

Have you ever wanted to make a quick change to a file in a repository without having to clone it locally? You want to edit your code where it lives. Introducing the Bitbucket online editor: edit your code directly with Bitbucket – no command line, no cloning, no local editor.


Edit any file, anywhere

From Bitbucket, you can edit any file, anywhere, all you need is your browser. Once you’re happy with your edits, you can commit straight away or create a pull request to contribute your changes.

Edit button from Source

Once you select Edit from the source browser, Bitbucket activates the editor and away you go. Syntax highlighting and diff view are all an integrated part of the code editing experience.

Bitbucket editor

The editor is intelligent enough to determine the indentation style from the file’s original contents. If it’s off the mark, you can manually set your preferred indent mode and tab size.


The workflow is flexible for every team’s process – commit directly to the branch you’re editing on, or create a pull request and select your reviewers. If you don’t have write access, Bitbucket will automatically create a fork for you and commit your changes before submitting a pull request.

Quickly react to pull request feedback

Editor from pull requests

If your team is like ours, you’re using pull requests for code review. Often times, you have changes you need to make based on feedback from your teammates before your code is merged. Editing online shouldn’t get in your way. The Bitbucket online editor allows you to edit your open pull requests directly. We’ll even update your pull request for you once you’ve committed your changes.

Built with CodeMirror

At the core of the Bitbucket online editor is CodeMirror – an excellent open-source JavaScript code editor component. The project’s terrific extension API as well as its top-notch documentation made implementation nearly painless. In addition, the friendly MIT license, the editor’s blazing-fast performance, and the project’s support for a wide number of languages made the choice of CodeMirror an easy one.

SourceTree – Git & Mercurial client for Windows and Mac updates

By on May 8, 2013

Since the public release of SourceTree for Windows a little over a month ago, we’ve been working hard to expand and improve our Git and Mercurial clients for Windows and Mac.

Windows client adds Git Flow support

Git Flow support with SourceTree

Our Git Flow support in SourceTree for Mac turned out to be really popular, and it’s been one of the top feature requests from the community since we released SourceTree for Windows; so we’re very happy to announce Git Flow support for our Windows client!

If you’d like some more detail on what Git Flow is, check out Atlassian’s Git Flow tutorial or our blog Smart branching with SourceTree and Git Flow

SourceTree for Mac version 1.6 adds interactive rebase

Having to bring up a terminal when you want to do an interactive rebase is painful. If you aren’t familiar with rebasing or the command-line, the pain level ratchets up to excruciating. We asked ourselves: “How can we make this simpler and keep everything in SourceTree?”. Our solution is a visual, drag-and-drop interactive rebase:

Interactive Rebase

The UI gives you visual feedback on each step of this previously advanced function. Want to re-order your commits? Want two commits to be one commit? No problem, just drag and drop the rows around.

There is so much more…
